Hideaway in Manzanillo Mexico
Pepe's Hideaway Manzanillo Mexico Private Nature Reserve Palapas Bungalows Resort Lodgings Accommodations
Contact: Pepe, Speedy and the gang.
Address: 67 La Punta-Las Hadas, Manzanillo 28861, Mexico
Activities/Attractions: The beautiful town of Manzanillo is in the state of Colima, Mexico ... 150 miles south of Puerto Vallarta on two small bays on the coast. Manzanillo in some ways has a feel of Puerto Vallarta but it is not nearly as touristy.
Manzanillo is an extremely old seaside town. The two bays near the town are partly responsible for its growth. They offer protection from the ravages of the sea. Bahia De Santiago is the most northern bay, and Bahia De Manzanillo is the Bay directly north of the town of Manzanillo.
Manzanillo proudly boasts of its waters as being the "Fishing Capital of the World." The nearby waters are supposed to have some of the best sailfish fishing in the world. The sailfish season is from November to March.
One other thing worth mentioning is the beautiful tidal lagoons that you can see from the main highway both north and south of Manzanillo. If you are into bird watching these would be the places to do it. Herons, pelicans, and flamingos are often seen in and near these lagoons.
"A wonderful experience is what my husband, myself and sister had at Pepe's. Our expectations were met and exceeded by a staff that felt like family. I cannot stress how attentive the Pepe's crew were at anticipating needs and providing remarkable service. From the moment we arrived at Pepe's piece of paradise the staff began the pampering in the form of native libations. We were delighted by the range of epicurean pleasures derived from Pepe's gourmet meals. A trio of recommendations for the massage services provided at Pepe's. Pepe's is a beautiful example of ocean side living. On a personal note I believe in a total experience of respect for others. I felt that Pepe's philosophy is similar. I cried as we left for after eight days it felt like leaving family and that bond began on day one. Also it is a great opportunity to from friendships with the other guests due to the level of quaint intimacy. Pepe's focuses on quality versus quantity and how lucky for us!"
"Pepe's Hideaway is fantastic. His small, but very capable staff, are very competent and caring. This provides for a more personal experience. Their welcome comes with a huge banner personalized for your visit there. The bungalows are great with a beautiful cliff view of the ocean. The food was excellent and they provided for our vegetarian diet. The 24/7 margarita benefit was awesome. Daisy and John, the Hideaway Daschund dogs, became near and dear to our hearts. Our trip wouldn't have been the same without them. We came away well rested, relaxed and pampered. We would return!"
"Spent a wonderful week at Pepe's in early February 2007. For those that are looking for a quiet, restful, romantic, secluded and totally spoiled vacation this is it. Unable to say enough praise for Pepe, Speedy and the gang. Speedy, as the chef, was absolutely great. Speedy, as Pepe's right hand man, was always available to add to our vacation experience. This, without a question, is our favorite destination in Mexico. Pepe, we will be back. Thanks so much for sharing your piece of heaven with us."
"Wow, what can I say? This place is the experience of a life time. Perched on a hillside surrounded by the homes of the rich yet totally secluded ... Pepe's is definitely for the young and young of heart. We flat out loved it, worth every penny IMO."
"In a word: Incredible. If you are considering a trip to "get away from it all" then do not hesitate to book your trip to Pepe's Hideaway. My wife and I believe it to be Mexico's best kept secret."
"As the headline accurately states, Pepe's Hideaway - located in a private, gated estate comprising extremely expensive luxury villas - is perhaps one of the best romantic retreats we've ever experienced. It's exactly the sort of exclusive spot you'd expect to bump into celebrities in need of some peace and downtime - away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi."

"How can one describe Pepe's Hideaway? It is hard to put into words. The beauty of the place is absolutely breathtaking. It is serene and soothing, the sound of the waves rocking you in a deep lazy nap, by the pool or in the privacy of your casita... as the staff spoils you rotten with all kinds of attention: my boyfriend and I hardly left the property and we went to the private beach only once where Speedy, Pepe's right hand man, brought us drinks and snacks (freshly made ceviche, guac and quesadillas, absolutely delicious!). It is Robinson Crusoe meets high cuisine, superb diners served on white linens under the palm trees... Time seems to stand still, yet the last day comes way to soon, only to make you ache to come back again. Go, enjoy, it is a jewel!"
"I had an absolutely splendid time at Pepe's. I am a 32 year Black female writer who traveled alone. I travel often and know when a place is the real deal or not. I am also a picky traveler. At Pepe's, I was treated to the best food, accommodations and conversation! Pepe can talk about anything and his stories are fascinating. I came alone, but did not feel alone."
